Spoilers for 'The Outpost' Season 3 Episode 9 'Dying is Painful'
'The Outpost' returned on The CW with another installment of Yavalla's (Jaye Griffiths) abuse of the power of her kinj. After making most of the realm infected, she sits on the highest throne and gains more power daily. In the latest episode, she lost two important players in her ploy — Tobin (Aaron Fontaine) and Gwynn (Imogen Waterhouse), who were rescued by Talon (Jessica Green), Garret (Jake Stormoen) and Zed (Reece Ritchie).
While this might pose a problem for her later on, there might be other bigger problems to worry about — the latest one being Georgia May Foote's Falista getting the kinj. The baroness of Aegisford had arrived at the Outpost looking for her husband Tobin, but after a slight brush with the brute Jaaris (Sam Callis), she finds herself in possession of the Red Kinj. The next episode 'The Outpost' Season 3 Episode 9 'She Is Not a God' will see if and how this kinj will affect Yavalla and Tobin's life.
We don't realize it at the moment, but Falista is quite the key character in the storyline going forward this season. She has one of the most powerful of the three kinjs, which holds the power of pain and torture. She arrived looking for Tobin and has also previously displayed a strong level of commitment to the Baron of Aegisford. This means that she is not going to take any noise against her relationship well.
So when Gwynn finds out about the marriage, she will have little choice but to give in and watch the love of her life walk away. This contract marriage was a result of rash decisions made under desperation by Tobin, in order to save the outpost and bring back an army. How peacefully will this love triangle conclude, if at all?
At the same time, Falista might also be detrimental to Yavalla's rise to power. With her own kinj now, she is immune to Yavalla's infection. If she decides to still remain loyal to Tobin and her love for him, she can lead an army to take over Yavalla and her position in the Capital. Her kinj will keep her protected while giving an advantage to her army.
The synopsis of the upcoming episode also reveals that "two groups hunt for Yavalla — one group in hopes to find a cure and the other trying to kill". We hope Falista has something to do with the latter. The next episode 'The Outpost' Season 3 Episode 9 titled 'She Is Not a God' will air on December 6, 2020, at 9 pm ET/ PT on The CW.
